Penn Emblem Company announced the passing of former Regional Sales Manager Burl Cohen. Cohen worked at Penn Emblem Company for a total of 10 years from 1990 to 2000 and then again from 2013 to 2015. During his service, Cohen covered Australasia and New Zealand. A veteran in the textile services industry, Cohen had over 40 years of experience as an operator and supplier.

Cohen was remembered by his coworkers as being ‘larger than life’ and “always owning whatever room he walked into.”  He was always eager to share his knowledge and expertise with his customers and colleagues, and he worked hard to ensure that his customers were his priority.

Penn Emblem Company President and Owner, Randi Blumenthal-Joseph remembers Cohen fondly, “Burl managed all of Penn Emblem’s international business in Australia and New Zealand. He brought Penn Emblem Company’s relationships and products to these areas of the world and was always successful in growing the business due to his hard work and dedication.”
